When parked on a slope, the car jerks shifting out from Park into Neutral or D shifting out of Park. Not uber harsh but feels quite unhealthy. Wondering if this can have a long-term negative affect on the trans if it's happening everyday or multiple-times a day? 馃槵

Somewhat related, I vaguely remember hearing that letting the car roll in N is no bueno for hybrids/CVTs.

I would really like to know about the initial question.
Any SanFran drivers here??

Mine does that too, but mostly when the engine is cold. It does jerk more when I select D or R when I have my foot on the brake or when the hand/parkingbrake is enganged. Since you say "on a slope" I'm assuming you use the parkingbrake.

I don't know about negative effect but I understand that since the trans is E-CVT (electric), there are no gear wheels that can wear out in the long term.

That's an important note I forgot to mention: I have the parking brake fully engaged when parked on a slope.
It's not the fear of car moving, just the rough gear change from P to R/N/D.

I cant say mine does that when parked on a flat surface, but, like me, this car def/ doesn't like waking up on a cold day.
